Olive has announced the first Indian Android smartphone which will run the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Most Indian manufacturers have focused only only launching underpowered, inexpensive Android phones, but the Olive Smart VS300 is a very powerful phone, which can easily compete with the current high end phones like the Samsung Galaxy S and the HTC Desire. It is probably the most powerful Indian Android smartphone yet.
Olive Smart VS300 Specifications
The Olive Smart VS300 comes with a 4.1 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It will be powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor and has 512 MB RAM. It also has 2 GB internal storage with support for up to 32 GB microSD cards.
It will run the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, which makes it one of the few phones to officially support it, and the only one in India. It will have a 5 MP camera with autofocus. At just 9.9 mm, it is one of the slimmest Android smartphones. It also has Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA and 3G support. It also has a GPS transceiver with A-GPS support.
It will be priced at around Rs 20000, likely lower. It should launch soon; we will keep you updated.
